Meeruthiya Gangsters Movie Review
FirstPost: Deepanjana Pal
Partly because of the script and partly because of the editing, Meeruthiya Gangster moves forward awkwardly and unevenly. At one point, when three of our heroes are in a gunfight, it feels vaguely like the script decided it loved the pointless mayhem in the climax of Rang de Basanti and so decided to plonk that scene in rural UP for Meeruthiya Gangsters. If coherence isn’t something you require from a film, then Meeruthiya Gangsters ambles along from crime to crime with stopovers in bars for some ear-shattering songs.

Quadri’s writing isn’t half as sharply funny or piercingly deadpan as it thinks it is, but that’s par for the course in a movie that celebrates the virtues of taking the easy way out. He aims for low-key sniggers, but some of the humour has the volume turned all the way down to zero. The clunkers in the meandering and episodic narrative fall every time the director tries to be cool, such as in the slow-motion action sequences and the longest fast-forwarded sequence in the history of cinema. But there are also gems: a kidnap is nearly derailed when the potential victim starts arguing over a trifle; a faked shootout almost becomes a real one when the bullets are switched.

Meeruthiya Gangsters movie review
The only respite in Meeruthiya Gangsters is the sly humour writer-director Zeishan Quadri laces his lines with. Barring that, there is hardly a show of his inspired writing. A bunch of dreamy-eyed local goons creating havoc – is a story we’ve often explored on celluloid and has now ceased to be as inventive or impressive as before. Drawing from the baleful sphere, Quadri dishes out an insipid formulaic story that follows the routine of staple gangster sagas in Bollywood.Advertisement
The pitfall of this film is writer- director Zeishan Quadri’s amateurishly penned script. The plot is formulaic and predictable. The female cast is used as the unconventional conduit to carry the story forward and to make it seemingly quirky.The characters, though interestingly peculiar, are cardboard thin as they are poorly etched in isolation of their roles. Hence, with no reference to their personal or family lives, they are unconvincing as well as unbelievable.
Meeruthiya Gangsters movie review by Koimoi:
There is absolutely nothing concrete in the film. Neither do you watch something extraordinary, nor hear. Thanks to a highly punctured plot itself , the film doesn’t move much farther. Also since everyone is not Anurag Kashayp, handling multiple characters without any significance is certainly not working. The week has four releases so don’t waste your money on this one.
Debutant director Zeishan Quadri makes all the classical mistakes of a first-timer. To begin with, he seems too consumed with the idea of infusing humour in tense sequences. This would’ve worked if the jabs were sharp and didn’t undermine or diffuse the magnitude of the scene. Here, they only serve as a distraction. Secondly, when you seamlessly capture an entire scene in a single shot, you may pat yourself on the back. But when you repeatedly do it, it seems like a gimmick and that you’re doing it just because you can.
